Sosuá is a small town in the Puerto Plata province of the Dominican Republic.
The town is divided into three sectors: El Batey, which is the main section
where most tourists visit,Sosua Abajo and Los Charamicos.
El Batey was the settlement area of approximately 500 of the 5,000 German and
Austrian Jewish refugees for whom the Dominican government issued visas between 1940 and 1945.
The government provided them with land and resources with which they created a
dairy and cheese factory, named Productos Sosua, still in existence today.
Descendants of the original settlers still live in Sosua, where they maintain a
synagogue and a museum. (See also Dominican Jews).
The North Coast of the Dominican Republic has been a top tourist destination for
Europeans for nearly three decades.
There is a very large ex-patriate community in Sosua, which consists of mostly
German, English, American, and Canadian expats.
